Tour de France 2022 – Van Aert five times richer than Pogacar: here are the bonuses after three stages


There are only the stages for which Wout Van Aert has not yet monopolized the lead of the classification. Yellow jersey of the Tour de France, also leader of the points classification (even if he “leaves” the green jersey on the shoulders of his runner-up, Jakobsen), the Belgian of the Jumbo-Visma is also the rider to have accumulated the most bonuses during this Grand Départ in Denmark.

However, he did not win a stage – a performance which brings in 11,000 euros – but his three second places, his two days in yellow and in green nevertheless allowed him to accumulate the modest sum of 20,300 euros. Nothing major given the amount awarded to the final winner (half a million) but it still allows him to get ahead of the two riders of the Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl stage winners, Fabio Jakobsen (13,830 euros) and Yves Lampaert (13,600 euros). Third and last rider to have raised his arms in this Grand Départ, Dylan Groenewegen (Team Bike Exchange – Jayco) remains at the foot of the podium with his 11,670 euros.

1270 euros for the best Frenchman

Holder of the title and most awarded runner on the 2021 edition, Tadej Pogacar (UAE Team Emirates) currently occupies “only” 8th place, with a gain (4,400 euros) almost five times lower than that of Van Aert . But the Slovenian is far from his land. Magnus Cort Nielsen knew the Grand Départ perfectly, at home in Denmark, and the rider from the EF Education Easy-Post training took full advantage of it, winning 6,540 euros thanks to his two breakaways, his passages in the lead at the top of the hills and his two days with the polka dot jersey.

The Danish triptych was not as successful for the French, absent from the breakaways and the race for stage victories overall. Suddenly, the most awarded Habs is Hugo Hofstetter (Arkéa-Samsic), who will have accumulated 1,270 euros thanks to his places in the two massive sprints. In the team classification, the Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl dominates without surprise with 28,030 euros in earnings, ahead of the Jumbo-Visma (25,580 euros) and the BikeExchange-Jayco (11,970 euros).
